Handset manufacturers will pay $1 per device that has the OMA DRM standard installed on the handset (which is pretty much every single Symbian handset) and when you purchase any locked-down music, video or media files from your operatoir, they'll pass over a percentage to the OMA (reports The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/01/07/mobile_phone_drm_royalty/)). The Register have explained the OMA DRM in depth previously - refresh your memory (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/07/15/oma_drm_for_phones/).
